Many Russians are convinced that life in their homeland has become completely unbearable. Someone is not satisfied with the restriction of political freedoms, someone is not satisfied with the low level of earnings and high crime rates. One way or another, the percentage of emigrants is constantly growing, the able-bodied population is leaving.
If you are a unique engineer, physicist, chemist, famous athlete or oligarch, you have every chance of moving to Canada, Australia or the United States. You can also get to the United States by winning the lottery run by that country and obtaining a residence permit (Green Card).
It will not be difficult for the descendants of foreigners to change their place of residence. Many countries are now offering to obtain a residence permit and citizenship by repatriation. The most massive and well-known "consumer" of repatriates is, of course, the state of Israel. If yours, mom, dad, grandfather or grandmother were Jews, you will easily get the opportunity to settle in this country. In addition to Israel, Germany provides the opportunity to emigrate to Jews as compensation for the Holocaust.
If you are convinced that you do not have any opportunities to leave on a work visa, and your ancestors come from the peoples of Russia, you can go as a business migrant. Previously, a residence permit based on "business" could be easily obtained in the Czech Republic, which was used by hundreds of thousands of our compatriots. Then entire cities began to speak Russian, and the issuance of business visas almost ceased.
Spain is no less popular among immigrants. It is a country with a great climate and friendly people. True, for the happiness of basking in the Spanish sun, you will have to pay about thirty thousand euros and fight with local bureaucrats.
The sweetest state to the Russian heart is, of course, Bulgaria. You can get a residence permit by opening a representative office of a foreign company or by hiring ten Bulgarian citizens. Visas are given willingly, the attitude towards Russian speakers is excellent, the climate is mild, the font is Cyrillic, and crime is low. That is why several hundred thousand Russian citizens live permanently in Bulgaria.
If you want summer all year round, exoticism and adventure, but you don't want to overpay for all this, you can go to Southeast Asia. Thailand is the most popular among Russians. So, in the city of Pattaya, Russian speech can be heard almost more often than Thai. The only inconvenience of living in Thailand is the need to cross the border every month to renew your visa. Cambodia now competes with Thailand.
